    What Air Filter?

    I have a snorkel mainly to reduce dust. No change in fuel consumption. I defiantly see the positive difference in less dirt on the filter and air box. As mentioned, at about normal intake height of most trucks you meet all the size particles, and as you go higher, less of them=less dirt to...

    What Air Filter?

    Look for high quality non-reusable filters. Fine dust with high quartz % (silt) is what kills your engine. Silt+oil (your engine oil..)=grinding paste to your engine’s internals. Reusable filters are just not filtering good enough. “High flow” filters in the original filter house equals to less...

    When Your Daily Driver is Your Overland Rig

    Great article. Should add the benefit of other drivers less motivated to cut you off when they see that small steal elephant in the lane beside them. Add a secure main cutoff switch for the winch. Heard about and personal had people massing with the winch line on the street. The awkward look...
